Ruby's use to be great when it first opened, however now it is rundown and dirty. The ketchup and mustard carrier was sticky and dirty. The water feature was filled with nasty looking water and the entire building just looked run down and beat up. Food was so so. Will defiantly not be going back.

We always make a point of dining at least twice at Ruby's when we're visiting California for their excellent burgers, fries and shakes. Truly, these are the tastiest, freshest burgers and you really can't beat a Ruby's Double Dark Chocolate Chip Malted Shake (I'm salivating just thinking about all of this) - it's big, it's luscious and it's very shareable....

Huntington Beach is our favorite when we are in the LA area. Lots of different people, nice sand, great for long walks and kids to play. We always go to Ruby's at the end of our day for burgers and shakes. A couple of our group got salads this time and said they were great. Yeah, it is a little... More

I stopped off here for a milkshake when I was having a walk up the pier. You must not go to the end of the pier and turn back without purchasing a strawberry milkshake

Myself and my partner visited Ruby's Diner whilst we were staying in Huntington Beach. The food was delicious and the milkshakes were awesome. The staff were really friendly and nice. The Diner is located on the end of Huntington Pier so the setting is unbeatable and the views are gorgeous.

Was feeling thirsty after a long walk to the end of the pier and looked at their menu and ordered the pumpkin spiced hot chocolate as I was craving for sugar. It was a really good blend of spice and sugar

This dinner was arranged to be able to connect with my cousins. We had a wonderful reunion. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. The theme of a fifties dinner was well done, but not enough to cover an I memorable experience.

It's fun to take the kids on the long walk down the pier, hopefully get a good clear view of Catalina Island and Long Beach. off-season there is usually no wait. However during the busy season April through August, you could wait up to 1 hour. The service on the ground floor is a lot faster than the top floor... More

We recently visited Ruby's Diner and were very happy with our experience. We ordered Cheeseburgers and Fries and they were among the best that we had had on our trip along the west coast. The prices were reasonable and the staff were very friendly. We loved that they wore traditional 50's style uniforms. Everyone needs to try Ruby's Diner. You... More
